Those sound like greate candidates for the CBT tape. Maybe you could send them to one of the Sam's for inclusion, or are they proprietary code?

I have a few solutions for you.
1) I can send you a program that you execute as a step in your job and it
will create a sondition code based on what day of the week it is,
(1=Monday, 2=Tuesday, etc.) and another one that does the same thing, but
returns the day of the month as a condition code, i.e. RC=23 means it's
2) I can send you a program that you pass the day of the week in your parm
(i.e. Tuesday), and it will set the condition code rc=4 if it's that day
or RC=8 if it's not.
3) I can send you a program that checks if a file (that you pass oin the
parm) has been created today, if so, the RC is set to 0 if found and
created today, 4 if found but not created today, and 8 if not found. You
can then use it to make sure that your process runs only once a day. But
htat doesn't really fit your requirements right now.
4) I have a command and job scheduler that is available in a free version
that will allow you to schedule any command or submit any job based on day
of week, day of month, time of day, etc. processing.
5) I also have a non-free, ($1,500) version of the program in #2 above
that gives you many more options like IF based processing, i.e. If it's
10am and CICS is active, then submit this job.
6) I have another non-free (also $1,500) facility that functions as a on-
demand script processor with the full scripting ability so that your job
could execute a script which (depending on the time of day, day of week,
system ID, and any of 30 other options) submit your correct process or job.
I think that you can use either option 5 or 6 to get exactly what you want
in a supported product, and the cost is minimal, certainly far cheaper
than either a scheduling or command package from IBM or any other vendor.
Take your pick. Just send me an email and let me know which one you want
to try. I can send you a test version of the non-free ones.
